Whereas, Through his industry, through his 
understanding, and through his knowledge of 
County affairs, he was recognized as one of the 
most valued and influential members of this body 
in all the years that he served; and 

Whereas, He was particularly devoted to the 
cause of the poor and unfortunate as shown in his 
dedication to the continued improvement of the 
County Hospital and the Oak Forest Infirmary; 
and 

Whereas, His efforts on behalf of the people to 
conserve for the people the recreational pleasures 
of the forest preserves and parks of Cook County 
were outstanding; and 

Whereas, He gave generously of his heart, of his 
energy, and of his resources to underprivileged 
youngsters, to the adult needy, and to the aged ; and 
his concern for all his neighbors was limitless; and 

Whereas, All of his colleagues in every phase of 
government regarded him as a true and unwavering 
friend and looked to him for guidance and counsel 
in the seriousness of conducting civic affairs and at 
the same time could depend upon his jovial insight 
and philosophy to lighten the cares of representa- 
tion; and 

Whereas, His kindness and his genuine interest 
in the welfare of all people was a lifelong char- 
acteristic; and 

Whereas, He was a native Chicagoan, a veteran 
of World War I, and a citizen with great pride in 
his city and his county; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That we, the members of the 
Chicago City Council in meeting assembled this 
tenth day of April, A. D., 1961, do hereby make 
public acknowledgment of our grief at the passing 
of Daniel Ryan, give acclaim to his great service

In their eulogies the aldermen stressed the whole- 
hearted interest and efforts that Mr. Ryan had ex- 
erted throughout his career to promote the welfare 
of patients at Cook County Hospital and at Oak Forest

them in memory of his late colleague, Daniel Ryan.

counsel will be sorely missed in the administration of 
the multifarious affairs of the County of Cook. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, thereupon ad- 
dressed the Council, stating that, in the death of

Article I. 

Company agrees that immediately upon execu- 
tion of this agreement it shall, after procurement 
of all necessary building permits therefor, com- 
mence construction of a Telephone Exchange Build- 
ing (hereinafter referred to as "Building"), a 
parking area, and a garage upon the demised prem- 
ises. Said Building shall be constructed in accord- 
ance with plans and specifications prepared by 
Naess and Murphy, Architects, and approved by 
the Commissioner of Public Works of City. Said 
plans and specifications are on file in the office of 
the Commissioner of Public Works of City and are 
by this reference deemed to be incorporated herein. 
Said Building and garage shall be personal prop- 
erty of Company and not part of the real estate 
and shall so continue during the term of this agree- 
ment. 

Article II. 

Upon completion of the Building it shall there- 
after not be enlarged without, in each case, the 
consent in writing of the Commissioner of Public 
Works of City first had and obtained and permits 
received therefor. 

Company covenants and agrees to pay all costs, 
expenses and liabilities arising out of or in any 
way connected with the construction, restoration, 
repair or renewal of said Building and improve- 
ments upon the demised premises and to keep said 
demised premises and the Building and improve- 
ments situated thereon free and clear from any 
and all liens in any way arising out of such con- 
struction, repair, restoration or renewal; provided 
that Company may in good faith contest the valid- 
ity of any lien. 

Company shall keep said premises in a safe, 
sanitary and sightly condition at all times, and 
shall conform to all provisions of the Municipal 
Code of Chicago relating thereto. 

Upon termination of this lease by lapse of time 
or otherwise Company shall promptly remove from 
said premises, upon demand in writing so to do by 
City, all or such part of the Building and improve- 
ments thereon erected by Company as may be des- 
ignated in such written demand, cleaning up the 
debris and leaving the demised premises in a safe, 
sanitary and sightly condition, and without inter- 
ference with Airport operations. 

Company shall be entitled during the term of 
this lease, and for a reasonable time (not exceed- 
ing 120 days) after its termination, to remove 
from the premises involved, or any part thereof, 
all buildings, improvements, trade fixtures, tools, 
machinery, equipment, materials and supplies 
placed thereon by it pursuant to this lease, sub- 
ject, however, to any valid lien City may have 
thereon for unpaid rentals or other amounts pay- 
able by Company to City hereunder or under any 
other agreement between City and Company relat- 
ing to Airport or any part thereof, and provided 
that Company shall repair all damage resulting 
from such removal. 

Company agrees that upon completion of the 
Building it shall be used for communications serv- 
ices relating to the business of the Airport and its 
tenants and the accommodation of the public at 
the Airport, including communications services in- 
cidental thereto, it being understood that so long 
as the Airport is in operation, the Building will 



4704 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 12, 1961 



not be used as a routine replacement for services 
which would ordinarily be rendered through sub- 
urban locations. No use of the Building may in- 
terfere with the functioning of the Airport or the 
quality of its communications services. 

It is understood and agreed that Company shall, 
prior to commencement of construction, submit the 
plans of the Building to the District Engineer of 
the Federal Aviation Agency, pursuant to Part 625 
of the Regulations of the Administrator. Evidence 
of such submission and action thereon shall be ap- 
pended hereto as Exhibit "B" and made a part 
hereof. 

Company shall have the right to connect, at its 
own expense, and subject to payment of all user 
charges therefor, to other public utilities located 
on the Airport property. 

Article III. 
Company shall pay to City at the office of the 
City Comptroller as ground rental for the demised 
premises the sum of Eight Thousand Six Hundred 
Seventy-Five and 65/100 Dollars ($8,675.65) per an- 
num, predicated upon a rental rate of 10c per square 
foot, payable in advance in equal monthly install- 
ments of Seven Hundred Twenty-Two and 97/100 
Dollars ($722.97). In the event said term begins 
or ends on other than the first or last day of a 
month, said monthly payment shall be prorated 
according to the number of days of such month 
involved. The payment of ground rental shall com- 
mence on the date of issuance of a certificate of 
completion for the Building to be constructed on 
the demised premises as issued by the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works. The determination of said 
date by the Commissioner of Public Works shall be 
final and binding. 

Company shall further pay, in addition to ground 
rental and charges above specified, all water rates, 
all personal property taxes and all taxes on the 
leasehold, if any, lawfully levied or assessed thereon, 
or against any building or improvements herein 
designated as personal property thereon, or law- 
fully levied or assessed upon the personal property 
of Company wherever situated upon the Airport. 

City shall pay any and all taxes or special as- 
sessments, if any, which may be levied or assessed 
upon the demised real estate; provided, however, 
that the foregoing shall not apply to taxes on any 
personal property or leasehold of Company located 
on the demised real estate. 

Article IV. 
Company further agrees that while it occupies 
the demised premises under this agreement and 
during the term hereof it will install, maintain and 
operate at its own expense public pay telephones 
in the Airport Terminal Building and at such other 
locations on Airport as may from time to time be 
reasonably required or authorized by the Commis- 
sioner of Aviation of City. City shall furnish light 
for and keep public pay telephone space clean. 

Beginning with the date of completion of the 
Building as determined by the Commissioner of 
Public Works, Company agrees to pay City a per- 
centage of gross receipts from its operation of pub- 
lic pay telephones at the Airport in the same man- 
ner and at the most favorable schedule of rates as 
are in effect at the time of payment throughout 
the rest of the City of Chicago, which schedule is 
presently 21% on toll revenues and 19i/4% on local 
revenues. City agrees that it will not permit any 
of its tenants to exact another commission on the 



same gross receipts. These payments shall be in 
addition to the ground rental, taxes and payments 
specified in Articles III, V and VI hereof. Payments 
thereof shall be made by Company at the office of 
the City Comptroller, City Hall, Chicago 2, Illinois. 
Said City Comptroller is hereby given and granted 
the right at all reasonable times to examine and 
inspect the records and books of account of Com- 
pany relating to said payments, and to make cop- 
ies and excerpts therefrom and to do anything that 
may be necessary to enable a full, proper and com- 
plete audit. 

Article V. 
Company has paid to the City Comptroller of 
City the sum of Five Hundred Seventy-Three 
Thousand Eight Hundred Eighty-Three and 85/100 
Dollars ($573,883.85), said sum to be expended by 
City at such times and as it so sees fit upon war- 
rants drawn therefor as may be necessary to pay 
costs incurred under the terms of contracts RB-3, 
RB-7 and RB-24, Underground Electric Manholes 
and Ducts as awarded by City pursuant to the pro- 
visions of Article 22A of the Cities and Villages 
Act. Company agrees that in the event any altera- 
tions, extras or additions are requested by Com- 
pany and agreed to by the Commissioner of Public 
Works of City, addtional sums necessary therefor 
shall immediately upon approval of such request 
be likewise deposited. Copies of said contract docu- 
ments are on file in the office of the Commissioner 
of Public Works of City and are by this reference 
deemed to be incorporated herein. 

It is agreed by Company that the aforementioned 
sum may be expended by City, in its sole determina- 
tion, in such proportion as the costs of construction 
work for that part of said contracts as are attribut- 
able to installations of Company, bear to the total 
amounts expended for all construction outlined in 
said contracts. 

It is agreed by City that until such time as the 
aforementioned sum is expended under said con- 
tracts, interest, if any, earned thereon shall be paid 
to Company. It is further understood that nothing 
herein contained shall be deemed a direction to the 
City Comptroller to determine, consider or estab- 
lish an order of payment from any of the funds de- 
posited. The payment of said sum.s is the considera- 
tion for the exclusive use of said manholes and 
ducts herein referred to. 

Upon completion of said contracts Company 
shall, for and during the term of this agreement, 
and subject to Company maintaining and operat- 
ing same at its own expense, have the exclusive use 
for communications purposes only of those man- 
holes and ducts as are specified to be for telephone 
purposes in construction drawings accompanying 
said contracts, as amended by agreement between 
the Commissioner of Public Works of City and 
Company on any alterations, extras or additions. 
Any excess in payments made over actual construc- 
tion costs (allowing 10% for engineering and super- 
vision) under said contracts shall be returned to 
Company. 

Article VI. 

In addition to the ground rental provided for in 
Article III and the commissions provided for in 
Article IV for public pay telephones, Company shall 
pay to City five (5) per cent of its revenues from 
the use of its plant and properties within the Air- 
port. While the tax on the business of transmitting 
messages by means of electricity, as provided in an 
ordinance passed December 1, 1955 by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago (C. J. pp. 1494-1495),

and the franchise fees payable under the ordinance 
authorizing Company to construct, maintain and 
operate a telephone system in the public ways of 
City, passed July 20, 1931 by the City Council of 
the City of Chicago (C. J. pp. 709-716), or either 
of them, are in force and effect, the tax of 2% and 
the franchise payment of 3% shall be credited 
against the 5% due City under this Article. A 
credit of the amounts actually paid shall also be 
allowed if either or both of those rates should be 
varied. If any other tax based on revenues, sales, 
or income should be collected from Company by or 
for the benefit of City; or if any franchise, license, 
or excise payment is made to City by Company 
under existing or future ordinances a credit of the 
amounts actually paid shall also be allowed. It is 
understood and agreed that under existing ordi- 
nances no additional payments are due by reason 
of this Article. 

Article VIL 
Insofar as permitted by the Illinois Commerce 
Commission or other regulatory body having au- 
thority in the premises, Company will charge (a) 
the same rate for any call from its public pay tele- 
phones at the Airport to telephones in the rest of 
Chicago as it charges for calls from its other public 
pay telephones in the City of Chicago to telephones 
in the rest of Chicago, and (b) rates for other tele- 
phone services at the Airport not less favorable to 
the user than those prevailing at the time in the 
rest of Chicago. But this Article shall not become 
effective until the switching equipment in the Build- 
ing is cut into service. 

Article VIII. 
Company agrees that it will install such com- 
munications facilities between buildings comprising 
the Airport as may be requested from time to time 
by grantees, lessees, permittees, licensees, conces- 
sionaires or other occupants of said Airport, sub- 
ject always to Company's lawful tariffs. Such instal- 
lation shall be without cost to City, except on serv- 
ice for City. Within buildings and leaseholds, con- 
duit or other necessary supporting structures shall 
be arranged for by the persons served. Company 
may have the non-exclusive privilege of placing 
temporary portable micro-wave transmitters for 
the purpose of providing television and radio serv- 
ices with "on the spot pickups" of news events and 
civic activities at the Airport, at such places and 
subject to such rules for the safety of life and 
property as may be prescribed from time to time 
by the Commissioner of Aviation, and in accord- 
ance with the rules and regulations of the Federal 
Aviation Agency. Within the Airport, Company 
shall not excavate or erect any aerial plant without 
prior approval of the Commissioner of Public Works 
of City, and such work shall be carried out without 
interference with the operation of the Airport. 

The cost of relocation of any of Company's facili- 
ties, other than those provided for in the next sen- 
tence hereof, necessitated in the opinion of the Air-

committee report by changing Section 10- (14) to 
read as follows : 

Any complaint filed pursuant to this Act must 

be so filed within one year after the alleged 

unfair housing practice occurred, or it shall be 

barred. 

Alderman Despres moved to Adxipt the amendment. 
Alderman Campbell moved to Lay the Amendment on 
the Table. The motion to Lay on the Table Prevailed 
(Alderman Despres voting "No").

I. Introduction. This report surveys current fair 
housing practices legislation in the United States 
applicable to privately owned or managed housing 
as of January 27, 1961. The study was prepared at 
the request of the City Council which passed a

"open occupancy" of housing accommodations is 
provided by law. 

In the course of the study, various city and state 
officials and knowledgeable persons were visited in 
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on February 1, and New 
York City, New York, on February 2, and 3, 1961. 
The field study group consisted of Clifford J. Camp- 
bell, Deputy Commissioner of City Planning; Ed- 
ward Marciniak, Executive Director, Commission 
on Human Relations; and Bernard Gordon, Econo- 
mist, Department of City Planning. 

Fair Housing Practices 

Although the term open occupancy is widely 
used in the discussion of the subject in Chicago, 
we propose to use the term "fair housing practices" 
throughout this study. The term "fair housing 
practices law" is generally applied to city and state 
legislation covering this matter. Fair housing prac- 
tices refers to non-discrimination in real estate 
agent or broker operations, lending institution 
practices, advertising media practices, and vacant 
land sales in addition to practices in the rental or 
sale or other acquisition of housing units in the 
housing supply. 

The concept of fair housing practices does not 
mean that a person owning or managing a housing 
accommodation must sell, lease, sublease, or turn 
over such housing accommodation which is avail- 
able on the market to any family or individual 
which applies for it. The owner or manager of the 
housing accommodation retains his traditional 
right to examine the income status (i. e. paying 
ability), credit rating, character, conduct, and 
family composition of the prospective tenants. 

Summary of U.S. Experience. As of January 27, 
1961, four states and two cities have enacted fair 
housing practices legislation applicable to private 
housing with varying degrees of coverage: 



States 

Connecticut 
Oregon 

Massachusetts 
Colorado 



Cities 

Pittsburgh 
New York 



During the 1961 legislative sessions, fair hous- 
ing practices laws have been or will be introduced 
in a dozen states with the possibility of others 
joining in. The states where legislative drives al- 
ready are under way include California, Connecticut 
(amendments to existing legislation), Illinois, In- 
diana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, 
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Washington, and Wis- 
consin. 

Proposed fair housing practices legislation was 
defeated in Cleveland in 1960 and was withdrawn 
in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. 

A significant factor to be considered in evaluat- 
ing the experience encountered under fair housing 
practices legislation in the States and Cities is the 
length of time the various laws have been in effect. 
Reference to Table I., Number of Months Fair 
Housing Practices Laws Applicable to Private 
Housing Have Been in Effect as of January 27, 
1961, discloses that New York City has the longest 
experience with 34 months while Connecticut has 
the most recent law, which became effective some 
16 months ago. 

It is readily apparent that all of the fair hous- 
ing practices laws are relatively new; their enact- 
ment, for the most part, is only commencing to 
exert influence on the housing markets in the com- 



munities concerned. This factor must be taken in- 
to consideration in the evaluation of the effect of 
the legislation as well as the experience that has 
developed under it. 

It should be noted that the experience under fair 
housing practices legislation is similar to that un- 
der earlier civil rights laws dealing, for example, 
with employment and public accommodations. 
Change has been gradual and was accomplished 
through education, conciliation, and persuasion. 

A summary of the legislation enacted in the var- 
ious states and cities is appropriate at this point. 
Provisions of the laws, administration of the laws, 
and experience under the laws will be cited in that 
order. Table 2, Provisions of Fair Housing Prac- 
tices Legislation Applicable to Private Housing in 
States and Cities as of January 27, 1961, summa- 
rizes the areas of discrimination covered in addi- 
tion to the methods of enforcement available. 

II. Fair Housing Practices Legislation — Cities. 

New York City: 

The field study group visited New York City on 
February 2 and 3 and conferred with the following 
city and state officials and knowledgeable persons: 

Elmer A. Carter, Chairman, State Commission 
Against Discrimination 

John Dobbs, Housing Director, Commission on 
Intergroup Relations 

Sidney Frigand, Director of Information, New 
York City Planning Commission 

Madison Jones, Director of Intergroup Relations, 
New York City Housing Authority 

Elizabeth Kempton, Community Organizations 
Consultant, New York City Redevelopment 
Board 

Frances Levenson, National Committee Against 
Discrimination in Housing 

Warren Lindquist, Executive Vice President, 
Downtown-Lower Manhattan Association, Inc. 

Donald Munson, Director, Community Renewal 
Program, New York City Planning Commission 

Sam Retensky, Executive Secretary, New York 
City Redevelopment Board 

Ira S. Robbins, Commissioner, New York City 
Housing Authority 

Edward Rutledge, Housing Director, State Com- 
mission Against Discrimination 

Henry J. Spitz, General Counsel, State Commis- 
sion Against Discrimination 

Harry J. Trivisonno, Director of Program Plan- 
ning, New York City Housing Authority. 

Legislation. New York City's fair housing prac- 
tices law became effective on April 1, 1958, the 
first legislation of its kind in the nation. It con- 
sisted of the passage of Local Law, No. 80, the 
Fair Housing Practices Law, which forbids dis- 
crimination on the basis of race, color, religion, 
national origin, or ancestry in the rental, leasing, 
or sale of housing units in private dwellings con- 
taining three or more apartments and in real es- 
tate developments containing ten or more one- 
family or two-family houses owned or managed by 
one person and located on land that is contiguous. 
Religious institutions specifically are permitted to 
prefer or limit admission in housing accommoda- 
tions they operate to members of their o\^ti de-

nomination. Also, there is an exemption for per- 
sons who sub-let rooms in their own apartments. 

Administration. The Commission on Intergroup 
Relations is charged with administering and en- 
forcing tiie law. Any person believing he has been 
discriminated against in violation of the law may 
file a written complaint with the Commission; upon 
receipt of a complaint, the Commission investigates 
the matter and attempts reconciliation and the 
elimination of any discrimination it discovers. The 
Commission also is expressly empowered to initiate 
such action without first receiving a complaint 
whenever it has reason to believe that a violation 
has been committed. 

When the Commission fails to eliminate a viola- 
tion, it formulates its recommendations and refers 
the matter to the Fair Housing Practices Panel, 
which consists of twelve persons appointed by the 
Mayor who serve without pay. Each time a case is 
referred to the Panel by the Commission, the Mayor 
selects three Panel Members as a Fair Housing 
Practices Board to review the case and decide 
whether court action is warranted. The Board is 
empowered to conduct hearings and issue sub- 
poeneas ; the Commission already had these powers 
under the law that established it. If the Board 
decides in favor of a court action, it directs the 
Corporation Counsel of New York City to take 
court action to enforce the law. The law states that 
the proceedings before the Commission and the 
Board shall be confidential. 

Experience. As of December 1, 1960, the Com- 
mission had received 791 complaints charging dis- 
crimination under the provisions of the law: 

Total Complaints 791 



Verified 
Unverified 



618 
173 



As of 1957, the latest year for which official fig- 
ures are available, the total number of non-whites 
in New York City was approximately 981,000, ac- 
cording to the New York State Commission Against 
Discrimination. 

The status of the complaints and the types of 
settlements are as follows : 

51 percent ■ — Satisfactory Closings : Promise 
made to a complainant of the apartment in ques- 
tion or a similar apartment in the same build- 
ing, or placement on a waiting list for a future 
vacancy. 

27 percent — Closings of Unsubstantiated Allega- 
tions. 

22 percent — Closings for Administrative Rea- 
sons: Lack of jurisdiction, withdrawals of com- 
plaint, complainant failed to follow through, etc. 

As of December 1, 1960, 69 complaints were still 
active. Breaking down all complaints by group, 85 
percent of them involved Negroes; 9 percent, Puer- 
to Ricans; 3 percent, Jews; and 3 percent all other 
groups. 

Since the law went into effect, its constitution- 
ality has been challenged only once in the courts 
(Martin vs. City of New York). The plaintiff 
claimed that the statute represented unjustified 
interference with his property rights in his busi- 
ness. In denying the plaintiff's motion and up- 
holding the constitutionality of the law, the Su- 
preme Court, New York County declared that "the 
individual must yield to what legislative authority 
deems is for the common good". 



The Commission points out that the law has in- 
fluenced much more of the housing market than 
the number of complaints would indicate, since the 
conciliation of a single complaint invariably affects 
the over-all policy of management exercised by the 
respondent. Many of the management firms con- 
trol from 500 to 1,000 housing units, with one firm 
controlling 10,000. 

Two surveys undertaken by the Commission dis- 
closed the general willingness of landlords to com- 
ply with the law. No evidence has been received 
that indicates a decrease in the demand for hous- 
ing. 

It is significant to note that contrary to prophe- 
cies residential construction has shown an increase 
over the years prior to the enactment of the law. 
The year 1959 was hailed by the real estate indus- 
try as of one of its best. Neighborhood "inunda- 
tion" by minority groups has not resulted. There 
is evidence of a slow, steady dispersal of minority 
families over the city with no indication of in- 
creased racial tensions. Real estate values have 
not dropped and mortgages are not more difficult 
to obtain. There is no evidence that the migration 
of residence out of New York City has accelerated. 
In conferring with city and state officials and other 
knowledgeable persons in New York City, the field 
study group found no dissent from the findings 
summarized above. 

The New York situation was most clearly stated 
in the testimony of Mr. James H. Scheuer, Presi- 
dent of the Renewal and Development Corpora- 
tion, before the General Welfare Committee of the 
New York City Council on February 2, 1961. Mr. 
Scheuer's corporation has underway more than 
$100 million dollars of residential construction un- 
der the U.S. Urban Renewal Program in Cleveland, 
Sacramento, St. Louis, San Francisco, Washington, 
D.C., San Juan, Puerto Rico, and in the West Side 
urban renewal project in New York City. He stated 
that the fair housing practices law has not hin- 
dered profitable operations of the real estate indus- 
try in the city. To the contrary, he noted that 
building has zoomed to an all-time high in the past 
few years. He stated that the predictions made 
four years ago that the law would have an adverse 
effect on the real estate industry in New York City 
have proved completely unfounded. 

Mr. Scheuer, a member of the Real Estate Board 
of New York, testified as follows : 

"The law has not in any way hampered the suc- 
cessful and expanding real estate industry. It 
has not depressed property values. It has not 
resulted in mass inundation of Negroes into 
previously all-white areas. It has not dried up 
mortgage money, or in any way hampered the 
expansion of profitable investments in real es- 
tate. Since its enactment, the Sharkey-Brown- 
Isaacs Law (i. e. Local Law No. 80) has proved 
valuable, both as a statement of public policy 
by the residents of our city and as a means of 
securing the rights of all its citizens."

Legislation. Pittsburgh's Fair Housing Prac- 
tices Ordinance was passed on December 8, 1958, 
and became effective on June 1, 1959. The Ordi- 
nance was enacted to prevent and eliminate dis- 
criminatory practices in the rental, sale, purchase, 
or financing of residential housing because of race, 
color, religion, ancestry or national origin. 

The ordinance forbids: (1) the denial of an 
equal opportunity because of race, color, religion, 
ancestry, or national origin to purchase, sell, lease, 
sublease, rent, assign, or otherwise transfer a resi- 
dential property or refuse to negotiate on any of 
these matters, or to represent that such property 
is not available for inspection when it is available; 

(2) discrimination in the terms, conditions or priv- 
ileges in the use or occupancy of a housing unit; 

(3) discrimination in the furnishings of any facili- 
ties or services of a housing unit; (4) the denial 
of financing, mortgage, loan guarantee, or other 
funds for the purchase, construction, rehabilita- 
tion, repair, or maintenance of any housing unit or 
accommodation; (5) the publication or circulation 
of any notice, statement, or advertisement; an- 
nouncement of a policy; use of any form of an 
application; and the making of any record or in- 
quiry which specifies anj' limitation or discrimina- 
tion; and (6) the obstruction or prevention of en- 
forcement or compliance with this ordinance. 

The ordinance applies to: (1) any owner of five 
or more dwelling units whether single-family homes 
or in multi-family structures, and owners of less 
than five housing units are covered if a real estate 
agent handles their real estate transactions; (2) 
any real estate broker, salesman, or agent; (3) 
any lending institution; and (4) any other person 
who obstructs or prevents enforcement or compli- 
ance with the ordinance. Exempted from the ordi- 
nance are religious institutions or organizations 
and, of course, owners of less than five housing 
units. 

Administration. Enforcement of the fair hous- 
ing practices ordinance is the responsibility of the 
Commission on Human Relations; the Commission 
is an official agency of the City of Pittsburgh and 
its basic function is to assure all residents — regard- 
less of race, religion, or national origin — an equal 
opportunity to enjoy living and working in Pitts- 
burgh. 

Complaints charging violations of the fair hous- 
ing practices ordinance may be directed to the 
Commission. A complaint may be filed by an ag- 
grieved individual, the Commission on its own mo- 
tion, or any organization which has as one of its 
purposes the elimination of discrimination or the 
promotion of equal housing opportunities. If dis- 
crimination is disclosed after an impartial investi- 
gation by the Commission, it will attempt to re- 
solve the complaint by means of private concilia- 
tion and persuasion. If this procedure fails, the 
Commission can order a public hearing. If the 



Commission decides that a violation has occurred 
on the basis of facts presented at the hearing, it 
will issue the necessary orders to eliminate the 
violation. If the violation still persists, the Com- 
mission can request the City Solicitor to take court 
action. 

Action by the Solicitor may involve securing a 
court order to cease and desist from discrimination 
or invoking penalties. Violators of the ordinance 
are subject to a fine of $100 or 30 days imprison- 
ment. It is significant to note that up to the pres- 
ent time, the fine and imprisonment penalty provi- 
sions of the ordinance have never been invoked. 

In general, the Commission is interested prima- 
rily in obtaining voluntary compliance with the 
ordinance. However, in the absence of voluntary 
compliance, it actively pursues a program to re- 
move discrimination by conciliation, persuasion, or 
court action. In addition, the Commission has is- 
sued Regulation One which requires that a notice 
stating the essential provisions of the Pittsburgh 
Fair Housing Practices Ordinance be posted and 
maintained by every real estate broker, salesman, 
and agent; every lending institution; and by every 
owner of five or more housing accommodations at 
their establishments or the residential property in 
a well-lighted, easily accessible place customarily 
frequented by those coming to conduct business. 
The Regulation also required the owner of five or 
more units to distribute notices of this regulation 
to all tenants to the effect that discrimination in 
the management of residential property is forbid- 
den by the new law. 

Experience. On June 5, 1960, the Commission 
reported that during Pittsburgh's first year under 
the fair housing practices ordinance, 34 complaints 
were filed but that none had to be prosecuted. All 
of the complaints were adjusted satisfactorily with 
the exception of eight which remain under investi- 
gation and conciliation. 

During the year, there v/as no large movement 
of minority groups into all-white neighborhoods. 
More than 50 non-white families found housing in 
previously white neighborhoods without a single 
incident of violence. The Commission believes that 
many more non-white families made similar moves 
which did not come to its attention. 

The Commission also stated that the local in- 
suring office of the Federal Housing Administra- 
tion is cooperating by emphasizing that the fair 
housing practices ordinance applies to all FHA- 
insured construction loans in Pittsburgh. The FHA 
office places a sticker on each application for mort- 
gage insurance stating that the residential con- 
struction is covered by the Pittsburgh Fair Hous- 
ing Practices Ordinance. 

In general, the consensus of the people inter- 
viewed in Pittsburgh was that passage of the ordi- 
nance had not: (1) increased the rate of migration 
of white families to the suburbs, (2) adversely af- 
fected rent levels and the rate of residential con- 
struction, (3) affected the value of real estate or 
the availability of mortgage funds, (4) increased 
racial tensions, and (5) resulted in a large move- 
ment of non-white families into previously all- 
white neighborhoods. 

III. Fair Housing Practices Legislation — 
States. 

Neither the State of New York nor the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania have fair housing practices 
laws which apply to private housing. In what fol- 
lows, we summarize the experience of states which 



4724 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 12, 1961 



have adopted such laws. The states reviewed are 
Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Oregon. 
According to the latest information available, the 
experience of metropolitan cities such as Boston, 
Denver, Hartford, and Portland, located in states 
with fair housing practices laws, does not seem to 
be any different from that of Pittsburgh and New 
York City. The summaries which follow are based 
on the study of available published materials. 

Connecticut : 

Legislation. Connecticut's fair housing practices 
law became effective on October 1, 1959, and con- 
sisted of an amendment to the Connecticut Public 
Accommodations Statute. The amendment provides 
that there shall be no discrimination on the basis 
of race, creed, or color in any housing accommoda- 
tion offered for sale or rent which is one of five or 
more housing units located on a single land parcel 
or contiguous to one another and is owned or con- 
trolled by one person. In addition, the activities or 
real estate brokers are covered. 

Administration. The provisions of the Statute 
are administered by the Connecticut Commission 
on Civil Rights. Enforcement proceeds as follows : 
any person who believes that he has experienced 
discrimination may communicate with the Com- 
mission. After discussing his experience with a 
staff member, the individual must decide whether 
he wants to file a complaint. A complaint consists 
of a signed statement describing the circumstance 
the person regards as discriminatory; the com- 
plainant is not required to furnish proof of discrim- 
ination. 

No publicity is given any complaint unless it 
reaches the public hearing stage. If the Commis- 
sion believes, after investigation, that the alleged 
discrimination has occurred an attempt is made to 
adjust the complaint by conciliation. "Adjustment" 
means that the complainant, if qualified, is offered 
the housing. If conciliation fails, the commission 
may call for a public hearing; if the hearing body 
finds the alleged discrimination has occurred, it 
issues an order against the discriminator to cease 
and desist from discrimination. Failure to obey 
this order, if upheld by the courts, can result in 
fine or imprisonment for contempt of court. 

Experience. As of November, 1960, 25 com- 
plaints were filed under the Statute alleging dis- 
crimination in private housing — 25 were for rentals 
and included three efforts to purchase. The com- 
plaints on rentals were satisfactorily adjusted; 
some of these involved initial rentals in luxury 
garden-type apartments. Others included the en- 
try on a street or into a neighborhood of the first 
non-white family. In the complaints involving the 
purchase of homes, one has been satisfactorily ad- 
justed, one is pending, and one has been scheduled 
for a public hearing. 

Oregon : 

Legislation. Oregon's fair housing practices law 
became effective on August 5, 1959, and consisted 
of an amendment to existing statutes. The change 
prohibits all persons engaged in the business of 
selling, leasing or renting real property from re- 
fusing to sell, lease or rent real property solely 
because of the race, color, religion, or national 
origin of the would-be purchaser or lessee, or any 
other person. On the other hand, the sale, lease or 
rental, of real property by the owner of the prop- 
erty who is not in the business of selling, leasing, 
or renting is not covered by the law. However, if 
the services of a real estate broker, agent, or sales- 



man are used in connection with a discriminatory 
listing of real property, that broker, agent or sales- 
man is acting in violation of the law. 

Administration. Enforcement responsibility is 
divided between the Civil Rights Division of the 
State Bureau of Labor and the Office of the Real 
Estate Commissioner. The law provides that any 
aggrieved person may file a complaint with the 
Bureau of Labor. The Bureau then will conduct an 
investigation of the complaint, an essential step in 
the process in which an effort is made to settle the 
matter by conference, conciliation, and persuasion 
rather than by punitive action. The State Attorney 
General also is authorized to file such a complaint. 
In those cases which cannot be settled by negotia- 
tion, the power of judgment lies with the Commis- 
sioner of Labor, who may call on the courts to 
enforce his orders. Any party against whom an 
order is issued may appeal to the Circuit Court. 

The State Real Estate Commissioner is involved 
as the authority who licenses real estate agents. 
He is empowered to conduct his own investigation 
of the case and to revoke the license of any agent 
adjudged guilty of violating the statute. 

The initial approach to the administration of the 
law places maximum emphasis on community edu- 
cation, conference, conciliation, and persuasion, 
with the use of the enforcement powers of the law 
a matter of last resort. The educational program 
includes information program activities designed 
to spread understanding and acceptance of the in- 
tent and purposes of the housing law, and to in- 
form the citizenry as to the rights and responsibili- 
ties of all persons in the population under the law. 

Experience. In general, experience under the law 
has been favorable. There has been no rush of 
irresponsible complaints; the investigations are 
reported as being thorough and conducted on an 
objective basis with constant regard for the rights 
of all parties concerned. The law's enforcement 
powers have been used only as a last resort, and 
the administrative rules developed by the Civil 
Rights Division are reported to be effective. 

Recent neighborhood studies of the effect of 
Oregon's fair housing practices law on the disper- 
sion of nonwhite families into previously all-white 
neighborhoods reveal that non-white families have 
moved into certain previously restricted areas. Bet- 
ter housing opportunities are becoming more avail- 
able to minority group buyers and renters as a 
result of the enforcement and accompanying edu- 
cational program of the Civil Rights Division. 

The complaints filed have not been numerous. 
Between August 5, 1959, and July 30, 1960, sixteen 
formal complaints, six informal requests for in- 
quiry into a particular housing practice, and 14 
reports of intergroup tension incidents related to 
a minority housing situation were processed by the 
Division. In eight of the cases, an illegal practice 
was found and corrected through conciliation; one 
of the complaints required a public hearing. 

Spot checks of the housing market across the 
state indicate a gradual but appreciable improve- 
ment in housing opportunities for all of Oregon's 
minority groups. To date, there has been no or- 
ganized opposition from any section of the real 
estate industry. The Oregon fair housing practices 
law is supported by a real estate law enacted in 
1959 which authorized the Real Estate Com.mis- 
sioner to suspend or revoke the license of any real 
estate broker or salesman who is discovered violat- 
ing the state law on fair housing practices. To date.

the Real Estate Commissioner has not been re- 
quired to invoke such a penalty. 

Massachusetts : 

Legislation. Massachusetts' fair housing prac- 
tices law became effective on July 21, 1959, and 
consisted of an amendment to the General Laws of 
Massachusetts. The amendment prohibits the re- 
fusal to rent or lease to any person any apartment 
in all multi-family dwellings containing three or 
more units and the sale of units in housing devel- 
opments consisting of ten or more units located 
contiguously on the basis of race, creed, color, or 
national origin. In February, 1960, the legislation 
was extended to cover "any person engaged in the 
business of granting mortgage loans." An added 
protective measure in Massachusetts is a recent 
ruling by the State Attorney General that real 
estate brokers and salesmen are barred from dis- 
criminating by the State's public accommodations 
statute. 

Administration. The fair housing practices leg- 
islation is administered by the Massachusetts Com- 
mission Against Discrimination. All complaints 
regarding violations of the fair housing practices 
legislation must be made under oath and filed in 
the Commission's office. When complaints are filed, 
an investigation is made and a conference is sched- 
uled in an attempt to resolve the differences by 
conciliation and persuasion. If the conference is 
not successful, a public hearing is scheduled. The 
Commission is empowered to issue orders to effec- 
tuate its decisions regarding complaints; any per- 
son who violates a final order of the Commission 
may be subject to a fine of not more than $500 or 
imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. 
Furthermore, the Commission requires that notices 
stating the provisions of the fair housing practices 
law be posted in the office or place of business 
where negotiations for renting, leasing, or pur- 
chasing of homes — or renting and leasing of apart- 
ments — are transacted. 

Experience. The Commission reports that dur- 
ing the 17 months' operation of the fair housing 
practices law, 83 complaints had been filed. As of 
December 21, 1960, 27 of the complaints were open 
and pending, and 56 were closed. Of the 56, 33 
were closed after investigation and conference or 
a formal hearing; 21 were disposed of due to lack 
of probable cause or jurisdiction; and two com- 
plaints were withdrawn. Only one complaint filed 
under the Massachusetts law has reached a public 
hearing stage. 

Many real estate boards in Massachusetts have 
been cooperative and a number have arranged 
workshops and briefing sessions in conjunction 
with the Commission. On April 11, 1960 the Massa- 
chusetts Association of Real Estate Boards joined 
with the Commission in sponsoring the first state- 
wide housing conference to study the fair housing 
practices law. The day-long meeting, held at the 
Boston College Law School, was attended by 250 
representatives of real estate business, religious, 
professional, and civic groups. 

Colorado : 

Legislation. Colorado's fair housing practices 
law went into effect on May 1, 1959, the nation's 
first state law. The Colorado Fair Housing Act of 
1959 is applicable to all private transactions ex- 
cept those involving owner-occupied units. It also 
covers the sale or lease of vacant land and the 
activities of real estate operators, lending institu- 
tions, and the advertising media. The law specific- 



ally prohibits any person having ownership or ren- 
tal rights to deny to sell or rent such housing to 
any person on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, 
national origin, or ancestry. Any person to whom 
application is made for financial assistance for the 
acquisition, construction, rehabilitation, repair, or 
maintenance of any housing may not discriminate 
on the basis of, or make inquiries about, race, 
creed, and so on. Inclusion in any transfer, rental, 
or lease of housing of any restrictive covenants 
was prohibited. In addition, any notice or adver- 
tising which indicated any preference or discrimi- 
nation was prohibited. 

Administration. The fair housing practices law 
is administered by the State Anti-Discrimination 
Commission. Any person claiming to be aggrieved 
by an unfair housing practice may file a claim 
with the Commission. After the complaint is filed, 
the Commission makes a prompt investigation. If 
the investigation discloses that probable cause ex- 
ists for crediting the allegations of the complaint, 
the commission immediately endeavors to eliminate 
the unfair housing practice by conference, concilia- 
tion, and persuasion. In case of failure to satis- 
factorily settle a complaint in this fashion, the 
Commission gives written notice to the person 
named in the complaint (i. e. respondent) requir- 
ing him to answer the charges at a hearing before 
the Commission. 

The Commission and the complainant have the 
power to amend the complaint, and the respondent 
has the power to amend his answer. If the Com- 
mission finds that the respondent has engaged in 
an unfair housing practice after all the evidence 
has been presented at a hearing, the Commission 
orders the respondent to cease and desist and to 
take affirmative action to effectuate the purposes 
of the Act. Any complainant or respondent claim- 
ing to be aggrieved by a final order of the Com- 
mission (including the refusal to issue an order) 
may obtain judicial review thereof, and the Com- 
mission may obtain a court order for its enforce- 
ment in a proceeding. The jurisdiction of the court 
shall be exclusive and its judgement and order are 
final subject to review by a higher court. 

Experience. As of April 1960, seven formal com- 
plaints of housing discrimination had been filed — 
two concerning religion, two based on national 
origin, and three on race. The educational and in- 
come levels of complainants range from low educa- 
tion and income levels to a recipient of a Master's 
degree and incomes in the $7,000 bracket. Three 
of the complaints involved rental housing, one in- 
volved a house for sale, and three were concerned 
with the sale or use of land. 

Two of the complaints have been closed satisfac- 
torily, and the others are still pending. The case 
involving the house for sale went to the public 
hearing stage and is now in the courts awaiting a 
decision. 

In addition to the formal complaints, eighteen 
informal reports of violations were made. Most of 
these involved discriminatory advertising and were 
adjusted successfully. The Commission reports that 
although the real estate industry as a whole has 
taken no formal action toward obtaining voluntary 
compliance, there is evidence of interest and a 
measure of cooperation. If further reports that a 
slow dispersal of minority groups is taking place. 

IV. Conclusions and Tentative Explanations — 
New York and Pittsburgh Experiences. 

An evaluation should be made of the experiences 



4726 



JOURNAI^— CITY COUNCII^— CHICAGO 



April 12, 1961 



in New York City and Pittsburgh under a fair 
housing practices law in order to weigh the appli- 
cability of their experience to the situation in Chi- 
cago. New York City and Pittsburgh are similar 
to Chicago in that both are large, central cities of 
metropolitan areas. Further, both contain huge 
cosmopolitan populations consisting of large num- 
bers of citizens of every race, creed, color, national 
origin, and ancestry. 

On the basis of available evidence and present 
knowledge on published material and field studies, 
the conclusion appears inescapable that passage of 
fair housing practices laws in both cities to date 
has not brought any significant, consequential, or 
striking changes in: 

(1) The rate of residential construction and 
rent levels. 

(2) The rate of white migration to the suburbs. 

(3) Property values and the availability of 
mortgage funds. 

(4) The movement of non- whites into all-white 
neighborhoods. 

(5) Racial tensions. 

The preceding statement can be regarded as one of 
fact. 

Although the statement above is based on short- 
run experience, it is significant to note that none 
of our informants in New York City and Pitts- 
burgh indicated that they anticipated any marked 
change in the long-run experience. 

The following types of explanations emerged 
from the discussions conducted in New York City 
and Pittsburgh : 

Length of Time in Force. The fair housing prac- 



tices laws have not been in effect long enough to 
bring about any significant changes in the housing 
situation. The laws in New York City and Pitts- 
burgh became effective on April 1, 1958, and June 
1, 1959, respectively. 

Other Limiting Factors. Social and economic 
factors other than housing discrimination result in 
non-white concentrations in various neighborhoods 
of the city . The income factor would be significant; 
since non-white families, on the average, earn 
relatively lower incomes than white families, the 
non-whites would be at a relative disadvantage in 
bidding for better quality housing in nicer neigh- 
borhoods than those presently occupied. A second 
factor may be that non-whites may not be anxious 
to disperse into previously all-white neighborhoods. 

Housing Accommodations Coverage. The types 
of housing accommodations covered in the New 
York City and Pittsburgh laws have resulted in 
minimal social and economic changes. 

Acceptance of Law. The white populations of 
the two communities have more or less accepted 
the fair housing practice laws and are going along 
with the spirit of the law. In passing the Pitts- 
burgh and New York Ordinances, the city councils 
delayed the effective dates for several months to 
allow time for educational processes to explain the 
operation of the law. Enforcement procedures are 
different in New York and in Pittsburgh. In New 
York there is no provision for fines as in Pitts- 
burgh, but both cities require court orders. To 
date no fine has been levied under the Pittsburgh 
ordinance. 

In both New York City and Pittsburgh, the prin- 
ciple of non-discrimination was advanced as the 
strongest argument in favor of an ordinance.

The above elevations as fixed shall be measured 
from Chicago City datum as established by the 
City Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadway (s) of the several street (s) hereto- 
fore specified between the points herein described, 
also the roadway (s) of the intersecting alley (s) 
extended from the curb line to the street line on 
each side of said specified street (s) between the 
points herein described shall be so graded by cutting 
for filling and compacted by rolling with a roller 
of ten (10) tons weight that after the grading of 
the roadbed (s) is completed and the pavement 
herein described placed thereon, the surface of the 
finished pavement at the center of the roadway of 
each of said specified street (s) shall be at the 
elevation of the top of the curbing herein described ; 
and the surface of the said finished pavement at 
the summits in the gutters between catchbasins and 
adjoining the roadway face of the curbing shall be 
three (3) inches below the top of said curbing, and 
at the catchbasin inlets in the gutters adjoining 
the roadway face of the curbing shall be nine (9) 
inches below the top of said curbing. The slope of 
the gutters adjoining the roadway face of said curb- 
ing shall be uniform from the summits to the 
catchbasin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a circle 
passing through the said gutter elevations and the 
elevation of the center of said finished roadway at 
every part of the roadway of each of said specified 
street (s) between the points herein described. 

In all intersecting alley ( s ) herein specified at the 
street lines of said specified street (s) the surface 
of the finished pavement adjoining the curbing shall 
be even with the top of the curbing, and the surface 
of the finished pavement at the center of the road- 
way (s) of said alley (s) shall be three (3) inches 
below the top of the curbing ; and a transverse sec- 
tion of the surface of the finished pavement at the 
street line(s) of said specified street (s) shall be 
an arc of a circle passing through the surface of 
the pavement adjoining said curbing and the sur- 
face of the pavement at the center of said finished 
roadway (s). The surface of the said pavement 
thence shall slope gradually to meet the surface of 
the finished pavement at the curb lines of said speci- 
fied street (s). 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch 
in thickness and shall extend across the full width 
of the roadbed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course consist- 
ing of a layer of crushed limestone of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of 
four (4) inches internal diameter and held on a 
ring of two (2) inches internal diameter. The stone 
as spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It shall 
be evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets filled 
with the small size stone. This layer shall be 
thoroughly rolled with a self propelled three-wheel 
roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons. The 
rolling shall begin at the edge of the pavement and 
the roller shall move parallel with the center line 
of the roadway. The roller shall progress gradually 
towards the center of the roadway, uniformly lap- 
ping each preceding track, covering the entire sur- 



face with the rear wheels and continuing until the 
stone does not creep or move ahead of the roller. 
After the crushed limestone has been thoroughly 
rolled and keyed, limestone screenings shall be ap- 
plied gradually over the surface and the rolling 
continued until sufficient screening have been ap- 
plied to completely fill the interstices. The screen- 
ings shall be swept in with hand brooms to properly 
fill the voids. The spreading and rolling shall con- 
tinue until no more screenings will go in dry. No 
excess of screenings shall be used before applying 
water. Immediately after the voids have been filled 
with screenings, the macadam shall be sprinkled 
until saturated, the sprinkler being followed by a 
roller. More screenings shall be added if necessary. 
The sprinkling, sweeping and rolling shall continue 
until a grout shall be formed of the screenings and 
water that will fill all voids, and form a wave of 
grout before the wheels of the roller. The quantity 
of screenings and water necessary to fill the voids 
shall be determined by the engineer and shall be 
sufficient to produce a rough, granular surface. The 
rolling, at all times, shall begin at the sides, and 
then progress toward the center, thoroughly cover- 
ing the entire surface with the rear wheels. When 
compacted, this layer shall measure not less than 
five (5) inches in thickness. 

Upon the finished waterbound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a depth 
providing a total base course thickness of three (3) 
inches after final compaction. After shaping to 
grade and rolling with a ten (10) ton roller three 
quarter {^/^) inch stone chips shall be broadcast 
and broomed into the surface voids at the rate of 
fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt 
at a temperature of 140° F. shall be uniformly ap- 
plied by a pressure distributor at a rate of one and 
one-half (IVb) per gallons per square yard. Stone 
chips shall again be broadcast and broomed uni- 
formly over the surface at the rate of fifteen ( 15 ) 
pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt shall be 
uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at the 
rate of one-half ( 1/2 ) gallon per square yard. Stone 
chips shall be broadcast again at the rate of ten 
(10) pounds per square yard. The surface shall then 
be thoroughly rolled. The asphalt shall conform to 
the State Specifications for Emulsified Asphalt R.S. 
1 and R.S. 2 Page 640 of Illinois Standard Speci- 
fications for Road and Bridge Construction adopted 
January 2, 1952. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches in 
thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete mix- 
ture conforming to the standard requirements of 
the Illinois State Division of Highways for Type 
l-II Asphaltic Concrete adopted January 2, 1952, 
as follows: The asphaltic mix shall consist of a 
mineral aggregate bonded with an asphaltic cement. 
The mineral aggregate shall consist of the best 
quality of crushed gravel or crushed stone in sizes 
graduated in accordance with the following table,

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the 
standard requirements of the Illinois State Divi- 
sion of Highways for Grade P. A. 6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2. 1952. It shall have a flash point 
(Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. It shall 
have penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit of seventy-five (75) to eighty-five (85), 
and at least ninety-nine and five-tenths (99.5) per 
cent of the bitumen shall be soluble in carbon 
disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt 
is heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
not be less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein described. Said paving asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than one hundred 
(100) centimeters being determined by elongating 
a briquette Dow form of said paving asphalt at 
uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per minute at a 
temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit 
in an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous 
mixture in which all particles of aggregate are 
coated uniformly. The heated mixture shall be de- 
livered to the pavement in trucks with approved 
clean tight dump bodies. The temperature when 
delivered at the street shall be between two hundred 
fifty (250) and three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. Upon arrival the asphaltic mixture 
shall be spread upon the prepared base at a uni- 
form depth and consistency so that the thickness 
when compacted as herein described will be two ( 2 ) 
inches. Immediately after the asphalt surface 
course shall be spread it shall be compacted thor- 
oughly and uniformly with a three (3) wheel roller 
or a tandem roller. The asphalt paving mix shall 
be dumped first upon approved steel dump pans 
outside of the area on which it is to be spread. 
Immediately thereafter it shall be distributed into 
place with shovels and spread with rakes in layers 
of uniform density and correct depth, unless a 
spreading machine is used. If a spreading machine 
is used it shall be of a type approved by the Board 
of Local Improvements. Immediately after the sur- 
face course mixture is placed it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three-wheel roller 
or a tandem roller. One (1) or more three-wheel 
rollers and one (1) or more tandem rollers will be 
required. The actual number of such rollers to be 
determined by the Engineer in accordance with the 
progress of the work. If the production of the as- 
phalt plant delivered to the pavement exceeds 
seventy-five (75) tons per hour additional rollers 
shall be furnished as directed by said Engineer. 
After a final rolling the asphalt surface course shall 
at all points have a density of not less than ninety- 
five (95) per cent of the maximum possible density 
of a voidless pavement composed of the same ma- 
terials in like proportions. 

Concrete crosswalks shall be built at intersec- 
tions only. Concrete crosswalks shall be built ac- 



cording to the Standard City Code of the City of 
Chicago. 

The concrete shall conform to Class X Concrete 
(as described in this ordinance for curbs and 
gutters ) .

doned are located at the intersections of streets.

the sewer shall be plugged and properly sealed and 
the corbel courses broken down and the catchbasin 
cleaned and filled with suitable material.

were issued have not been received by the City; 
and 

Whereas, It is now deemed expedient to convert 
said tax anticipation warrants into money for the 
restoration of the funds invested in said tax an-

poses for which said funds were set aside; now

The authority to issue the original warrants 
above described hereby is reaffirmed in all respects. 

Section 2. The new warrants hereby author- 
ized to be issued and sold shall be of a like prin- 
cipal amount, for the same purpose and in anticipa- 
tion of the same taxes as the original warrants 
were issued, and shall be subject to all the provi- 
sions in Sections 15-6 and 15-7 of the Revised Cities

date subsequent to the date of the original tax

of $1000 or multiples thereof, shall bear interest 
not to exceed five per cent per annum from the date 
thereof until paid and shall be sold by the City

Section 3. Simultaneously with the delivery of 
and receipt of payment for any of the new tax 
anticipation warrants, a like principal amount of 
the original warrants that were issued against the 
same tax that is anticipated by the new warrants, 
together with so much of the interest accrued 
thereon as the proceeds of the sale of the new tax 
anticipation warrants will permit, shall be paid and 
cancelled. 

The proceeds of the sale of the new tax anticipa- 
tion warrants shall be paid to the City Treasurer 
to restore the funds of the City of Chicago invested 
in the original tax anticipation warrants. Before

ment in the following order: (1) the principal 
amount so paid and (2) the amount of accrued 



interest paid. The City Treasurer shall also endorse 
upon the original tax anticipation warrants the 
amount of interest accrued thereon and unpaid, and 
the same shall not be paid until all principal and 
interest upon the new warrants shall be fully paid

thereof, if the new warrants are not presented for 
payment after they are called for redemption. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in force from 
and after its passage and approval.

4. Lessee has examined the demised premises 
prior to and as a condition precedent to the execu-

mised premises and improvements situated thereat

and occupancy of and operations at the Airport

fire or other casualty, the Lessor may restore or 
renew said building or improvement within six (6)

the time of such destruction or damage, in either 
of which events the rental reserved hereunder shall 
abate during the period from the date of such 
damage or destruction to the date the demised 
premises are fully restored for use by Lessee. 

13. Lessee agrees to abide by and be subject to 
all ordinances, rules and regulations which are or

istration Building at said Airport. 

14. If Lessee shall vacate or abandon said 
premises or permit the same to remain vacant or 
unoccupied for a period of ten (10) days, or in 
case of the non-payment of the rent reserved 
hereby, or any part thereof, or of the breach of 



any covenant in this lease contained. Lessee's right 
to the possession of the demised premises thereupon 
shall terminate, with or without any notice or 
demand whatsoever, and the mere retention of 
possession thereafter by Lessee shall constitute 
a forcible detainer of said demised premises, and 
if the Lessor so elects, but not otherwise, this lease 
shall thereupon terminate, and upon the termina- 
tion of Lessee's right of possession, as aforesaid, 
whether this lease be terminated or not, Lessee 
agrees to surrender possession of the demised 
premises immediately, without the receipt of any 
demand for rent, notice to quit or demand for 
possession of the demised premises whatsoever, and 
hereby grants to Lessor full and free license to 
enter into and upon said premises, or any part 
thereof, to take possession thereof with or without 
process of law, and to expel and remove Lessee or 
any other person who may be occupying the prem- 
ises, or any part thereof, and Lessor may use such 
force in and about expelling and removing Lessee 
and said other person as may reasonably be nec- 
essary, and Lessor may repossess itself of the said 
premises as of its former estate, but said entry of 
said premises shall not constitute a trespass or 
forcible entry or detainer, nor shall it cause for- 
feiture of rents due by virtue hereof, nor a waiver 
of any covenant, agreement or promise in said lease 
contained, to be performed by Lessee. 

15. Lessee hereby waives all notice of any elec- 
tion made by Lessor under this lease, demand for 
rent, notice to quit, demand for possession, and 
any and all notices and demands whatsoever, of 
any and every nature, which may or shall be re- 
quired by any statute of this State relating to 
forcible entry and detainer, or to landlord and 
tenant, or any other statute, or by the common law 
during the terms of this lease. The acceptance of 
rent, whether in a single instance or repeatedly, 
after it falls due, or after knowledge of any breach 
hereof by Lessee, or the giving or making of any 
notice or demand, whether according to any stat- 
utory provision or not, or any act or series of acts 
except an express written waiver, shall not be 
construed as a waiver of Lessor's right to act with- 
out notice or demand or of any other right hereby 
given Lessor, or as an election not to proceed under 
the provisions of this lease. 

16. Lessee shall pay and discharge all costs, ex- 
penses and attorney's fees, which shall be incurred 
and expended by Lessor in enforcing the covenants 
and agreements of this lease, whether by the in- 
stitution of litigation or in the taking advice of 
counsel, or otherwise. 

17. The obligation of Lessee to pay the rent re- 
served hereby during the balance of the term here- 
of shall not be deemed to be waived, released or 
terminated by the service of any five-day notice, 
other notice to collect, demand for possession, or 
notice that the tenancy hereby created will be 
terminated on the date therein named, the institu- 
tion of any action of forcible detainer or ejectment 
in any judgment for possession that may be ren- 
dered in such action, or any other act or acts 
resulting in the termination of Lessee's right to 
possession of the demised premises. The Lessor 
may collect and receive any rent due from Lessee, 
and payment or receipt thereof shall not waive or 
affect any such notice, demand, suit or judgment 
or in any manner whatsoever waive, affect, change, 
modify or alter any rights or remedies which Les- 
sor may have by virtue hereof. 

18. The right and remedies hereby created are

cumulative and the use of one remedy shall not 
be taken to exclude or waive the right to the use 
of another. 

19. In every case where under the provisions of 
this lease it shall be necessary or desirable for 
the Lessor to give to or serve upon the Lessee any 
notice or demand, it shall be sufficient to send a 
written or printed copy of said notice or demand 
by mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the Lessee, 
Continental Air Lines, Inc., Stapleton Airfield, 
Denver, Colorado, which notice or demand shall be 
signed on behalf of the Lessor by the Commissioner 
of Aviation. In every case where, under the pro- 
visions of this lease, it shall be necessary or de- 
sirable for the Lessee to give or to serve upon 
the Lessor any notice or demand, it shall be suf- 
ficient to send a written or printed copy of said 
notice or demand by mail, postage prepaid, ad- 
dressed to the Commissioner of Aviation of the 
City of Chicago, City Hall, Chicago 2, Illinois. 

20. It is agreed by and between the parties hereto 
that this lease is subject and subordinate to all of 
the terms, provisions and conditions of a lease 
from the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
to the City of Chicago, dated January 2, 1931, as 
amended, and that the right of the Lessor to lease 
the demised premises is founded only upon its lease 
from said Board of Education. 

21. Either party hereto is hereby given the right 
to cancel this lease upon giving the other party 
sixty (60) days' notice in writing at the end of 
any month. 

22. The Lessee in performing under this agree- 
ment shall not discriminate against any worker, 
employee or applicant because of race, creed, color 
or national origin. Lessee's attention is called to 
the State Act approved July 8, 1933 (Chap. 29, 
paragraphs 17 to 24 inclusive. 111. Rev. Stats. 1959) 
and an ordinance passed by the City of Chicago, 
August 21, 1945, page 3877 of the Journal of the 
Proceedings of the City Council. 

23. The Lessor has applied for and received a 
grant or grants of money from the Federal Avia- 
tion Agency pursuant to the Federal Airport Act 
of 1946 as amended, and the Department of Aero- 
nautics, State of Illinois, pursuant to the Illinois 
Aeronautic Act, as amended, and the Lessor may 
in the future apply for and receive further such 
grants. In connection therewith, the Lessor has 
undertaken and may in the future undertake cer- 
tain obligations respecting its operation of the Air- 
port and the activities of its contractors, lessees and 
permittees thereon. The performance by the Lessee 
of the covenants, promises and obligations contained 
in this agreement is therefore a special considera- 
tion and inducement to the execution of this agree- 
ment by the Lessor, and the Lessee further cove- 
nants and agrees that if the Administrator of the 
Federal Aviation Agency or the Director of the 
Department of Aeronautics or any other govern- 
mental officer or body having jurisdiction over 
the enforcement of the obligations of the Lessor in 
connection with Federal or State Airport Aid, shall 
make any orders, recommendations or suggestions 
respecting the performance by the Lessee of its 
obligations under this agreement, the Lessee will 
promptly comply therewith, at the time or times 
when and to the extent that the Lessor may direct. 

In Witness Whereof, the parties hereto have set 
their hands and seals the date and year first above 
written.

operation, or maintenance of the airport at which 
the property is located. 

(6) That during any national emergency de- 
clared by the President or by the Congress, the 
United States shall have the right to make exclu-

commensurate with the use made by it, of the cost 
of maintenance of such property as it may use non-

property described herein is located or used, with- 
out charge: Provided, however, that such use may

any time by the Administrator of Federal Aviation 
Agency to be necessary to prevent undue inter- 
ference with use by other authorized aircraft: 
Provided further, that the United States shall be 
obligated to pay for damages caused by such use, 
or if its use of the landing area is substantial, to 
contribute a reasonable share of the cost of main- 
taining and operating the landing area, commen- 
surate with the use made by it. 

(8) That the Grantee, its successors and as- 
signs, shall release the United States from any and 
all liability it may be under for restoration or other

the Grantee, its successors and assigns, upon which, 
adjacent to which, or in connection with which 
the surplus property described herein was located 
or used: Provided, that no such release shall be 
construed as depriving the Grantee, its successors 
or assigns, of any right it may otherwise have 
to receive reimbursement under Section 17 of the 
Federal Airport Act (Section 1116 of Title 49) for 
the necessary rehabilitation or repair of public air- 
ports heretofore or hereafter substantially damaged 
by any Federal Agency.
